Plymouth got back to winning ways with a comfortable 3-0 League Two win over 10-man Morecambe, managed by former Argyle boss Derek Adams.
Attacking midfielder George Cooper fired the home side ahead from a 20-yard free-kick following Ritchie Sutton’s foul on Dom Telford as the striker closed in on goal.
Sutton saw red for the foul and his side were punished by Cooper’s superbly executed strike, which gave diving Shrimps keeper Mark Halstead little chance as it curled away from him.
Argyle doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time when Antoni Sarcevic sent Halstead the wrong way from the spot following skipper Alex Kenyon’s foul on striker Joel Grant.
Player of the match Cooper teed up substitute Conor Grant to smash home from close range in stoppage time.
Argyle should have been out of sight by half-time as playmaker Danny Mayor’s rising drive came back off the angle and before scoring Cooper and Sarcevic both went close.
In a second half dominated by Plymouth Cooper sent another 20-yard free-kick only inches wide while substitute Zak Rudden’s shot hit the post.
